We Care

Treating cancer patients in our community is not just a job for our caregivers – it's a passion. Our physicians and staff are inspired everyday by the strength of patients who refuse to let a cancer diagnosis define them. Their stories motivate our caregivers to provide the same compassionate, expert care that communities in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan have come to expect at the ProMedica Cancer Institute. View conversations with our caregivers to learn more about what drives them to make a difference in the lives of their patients.

"I Will Not Let Cancer Define Me"

At ProMedica Cancer Institute, we don’t just treat cancer. We treat people with cancer.

When these five survivors heard the words “It’s cancer,” a new journey began for them. They represent the thousands who are traveling on this same journey and who have turned to ProMedica Cancer Institute for help.

Through their stories, you will get to know these survivors as the determined individuals who are fighting breast cancer, testicular cancer, brain cancer, throat cancer and colon cancer. They are your neighbors and community members. Each one coming to ProMedica Cancer Institute, northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan's strongest system of doctors and caregivers, clinical trials, support groups, patient education, and much more.
